Flame willow is a moderate size shrub with bright red-orange stems that are particularly striking in the winter. Leaves turn yellow in the fall. Like most willows, this shrub spreads easily and responds well to cutting and pruning. It is particularly well suited for wet sites and tolerates flooding as well as tough soils.
Flame willow is planted for landscaping, erosion control, shoreline, wildlife and pollinator habitat. Wildlife use it for browse and shelter among dense patches.
